The error comes from the module loader not finding a module it requires. 
  It is very hard to know based on the information you have given why 
the module isn't being found, so again, any help (including posting the 
.iso) would be extremely helpful.

It could be that the module is there but the loader doesn't find it for 
some reason, or some other issue.
